Specifically, the Committee seeks nominations of people who participated in the struggle to advance African Americans economically, socially, educationally, and religiously from the 1920s to 1965, who have made 1) a doctrinal or technical contribution; 2) an innovation with an identifiable impact on Alexandria's African American community; 3) efforts that were an inspiration to others; or, 4) any combination of the above that records the excellence of their achievements for posterity.
